Claim : Caleb White Died Suddenly From Vaccine SADS!

Right after news broke that Caleb White collapsed and died suddenly during an on-court workout, some people immediately claimed or suggested that the Alabama high school basketball star died from COVID-19 vaccine Sudden Adult Death Syndrome (SADS)!

Steve Kirsch : Another death of a young star basketball player. Come on folks. Have you ever seen so many cardiac events/deaths in young people before?

The common thread is that they were all vaccinated with the COVID vaccine.

Died Suddenly : Another young and healthy basketball player died Thursday afternoon. Pinson Valley High School senior Caleb White suffered a medical emergency at school.

Caleb was working out with his team when he collapsed to his death. Life-saving efforts were started at the school, and White was transported to the hospital where he was pronounced dead.

No Evidence Caleb White Died Suddenly From Vaccine SADS!

It’s now tradition for anti-vaccination activists to blame all athlete deaths or illnesses on the COVID-19 vaccine.

Here are the reasons why this is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and propagated by anti-vaccination activists…

Fact #1 : Caleb White Collapsed While Working Out

Caleb White was an Alabama high school basketball star, who was an all-state selection, and entering his senior year as a 3-star recruit.

On Thursday, 10 August 2023, Caleb White was working out on court at his school, when he reportedly collapsed at 1:12 PM.

First responders transported him to the St. Vincent’s East hospital in Birmingham, where he was pronounced dead at 2:23 PM, according to Jefferson County Chief Deputy Coroner Bill Yates.

Pinson Valley High School principal issued this statement:

I unfortunately have some very sad news to report tonight. One of our senior students suffered a medical emergency at school today. Life saving efforts were immediately started and first responders were called. 

Sadly, the student was later pronounced deceased after being transported to the hospital. We will have more to say in the near future. Please know counseling resources will be available for anyone who needs them in the coming days. Please keep the student’s family and our school in your prayers.

Caleb White’s grandfather, George Varnadoe Jr., offered more details about his grandson’s death:

My heart is extremely heavy. My grandson, Caleb White was working out with his team a short while ago. He collapsed on the floor, they tried resuscitating him. When that didn’t work, he was then transported to the hospital. The doctor’s [sic] couldn’t revive him. At 17, he was dead!!!!

Caleb was an honor student, very respectful, high intellect, excellent role model, phenomenal basketball player ranked 25th best point guard in his class in the nation & number 2 in the state of Alabama. RIP Caleb! I love you man!!!!

Fact #2 : Caleb White Presumably Suffered A Cardiac Arrest

George Varnadoe Jr. later said that Caleb White suffered a cardiac arrest, similar to what LeBron James’ son – Bronny James, almost died from recently.

24 hours ago, my grandson, Caleb White collapsed on the basketball court, went into cardiac arrest and all attempts to resuscitate him failed. This was similar to the illness LaBron [sic] James son experienced as he was working out.

Out family is overwhelmed by the outpouring of support but still in disbelief. Our whole family was really looking forward to his upcoming senior season and afterwards, playing for a D-1 school and then perhaps the NBA.

But ….. it wasn’t mean to be. You see, everything that happens, happens on time, because God wouldn’t allow it to happen, if it wasn’t on time. And so it was with Caleb.

We all have an appointment with God, one that you can’t reschedule. So we must stay ready, because you won’t have time to get ready. Please continue to pray for my family.

Fact #3 : Caleb White’s Cause Of Death Is Still Unknown

Even though Caleb White was presumed to have suffered a cardiac arrest (which is a known risk factor for young athletes), his official cause of death has not been confirmed.

On Friday, 11 August 2023, an autopsy was performed on Caleb White to determine his official cause of death.

Until and unless his family, or the Jefferson County Coroner’s Office, reveals the autopsy results, or Caleb White’s official cause of death, anyone who tells you that Caleb White died from this or that cause is likely lying to you.

Fact #4 : No Evidence Caleb White Has Myocarditis

There is no evidence that Caleb White was suffering from vaccine-induced myocarditis. If he had myocarditis from COVID-19 vaccines, it would have developed within days of getting the vaccination.

On top of that, he would have been experiencing symptoms of myocarditis like chest pain, shortness of breath, as well as heart palpitations or a pounding heart. It doesn’t seem likely that he would be able to play basketball without aggravating those symptoms.

Fact #5 : Cardiac Arrest Is Common In Young Athletes

Anti-vaccination activists falsely claim that young, healthy people do not suddenly collapse from cardiac arrest. The truth is many young athletes do suddenly collapse from sudden cardiac arrest, and many don’t survive unless they receive medical attention quickly.

The United States alone records over half a million cases of sudden cardiac arrest cases every year – an incidence of about 130 per 100,000 individuals per year. Many people have undiagnosed heart conditions that may not produce noticeable symptoms in daily life, but could result in sudden cardiac arrest at any time.

The risk of developing sudden cardiac arrest increases during strenuous activities, which is why many US states enacted laws requiring automated external defibrillators (AED) to be made available in health clubs, gyms, schools, and other public places.

And no, COVID-19 vaccines do NOT cause cardiac arrests, no matter what anti-vaccination activists may claim.

Neither can COVID-19 vaccines prevent people from getting cardiac arrests, or dying from them.

Fact #6 : Unknown If Caleb White Was Vaccinated

Despite claims that Caleb White was fully-vaccinated, there isn’t any actual evidence that Caleb White ever received the COVID-19 vaccine.

It is possible that Caleb White was unvaccinated against COVID-19. After all, the COVID-19 vaccine is not mandatory in the United States.

In fact, many people who were injured or died suddenly were actually unvaccinated, like Kris Jordan, Aaron Carter, Kirstie Alley, Stephan Bonnar, Shane Macaulay, David Wayne Burleson, and Kaden Clymer.

Until and unless his family reveals his COVID-19 vaccination status, anyone who tells you that Caleb White was vaccinated or otherwise, is likely lying to you. None of us know that.

Fact #7 : Vaccine Side Effects Appear Within Hours / Days

Even if Caleb White was fully-vaccinated against COVID-19, he would have received his doses over a year ago!

He cannot possibly have suffered from a vaccine side effect, because they appear within hours or days, not months later.

Mild side effects like injection site pain, fever, muscle ache, headache, lethargy develop within minutes to hours of the vaccination.

Anaphylaxis develops within minutes, while other severe adverse reactions like myocarditis and VITT develop within days or weeks.

The spike proteins produced by the COVID-19 vaccines also do not stick around for months. If these spike proteins are permanent (as antivaxxers claim), we would have lifelong immunity.

Your own immune system will identify the spike proteins as foreign, and destroy them within a matter of days, although some may last for up to a few weeks. This is part of how vaccines teach your immune system to identify the enemy and destroy it.

Fact #8 : Claims Of COVID-19 Vaccine Injuries Often Proven False

Most claims of sudden deaths / injuries due to the COVID-19 vaccine have been proven false. Here is the latest dozen of other false sudden death claims!

Will these anti-vaccination activists apologise for lying to you? Nope! They will just move on to the next death or tragedy…
